    Smile get serious hurt

    Please check out the following sentence.

    (1) There was an earthquake in a remote village last night.
    (2) With its giant impact, the quake toppled hundreds of houses and caused heavy casualties.
    (3) Some victims got serious hurt and some survivors buried alive in the debris and rubbles were wailing and whining for help.

    The commas are not absolutely necessary, but without them there is a potentially confusing parellelism with the first clause.
